Last month, I had the opportunity to celebrate my 73rd birthday with my family and so many close friends!

 

 

In my life, this is only the 3rd time I’ve celebrated my birthday.  Being considered a curse and bad luck as I grew up, no one wanted to celebrate that!  As I started my life in America, I didn’t pay any attention to my birthday coming and going.

My students would always approach me to suggest we throw a big birthday party.  I usually would tell them no.  Some years, we would hold dinners at homeless and recovery shelters.  I’d rather spend the time helping others.  My life has been so richly blessed by God, my desire is to only help others.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you to all my friends who flew in from overseas!  It was wonderful catching up with everyone!  I look forward to seeing everyone again soon!

 

 

Time is going by so fast!  Take a moment to tell your family, your significant other – anyone you appreciate – tell them you love them.  Don’t be stingy with your love!  Love is one benefit that isn’t taxed!

May God Bless You All!

Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim offers Private Classes in California and Oregon!

Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy provides many different programs! Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim and Master Instructors offer private classes in both California and Oregon. These classes are very popular in the surrounding cities like Medford, Oregon; Applegate, Oregon; Jacksonville, Oregon; Central Point, Oregon; Grants Pass, Oregon, and Fremont, California; Milpitas, California; San Jose, California; Cupertino, Silicon Valley California; and more!

What is a Private Class?

It is a one-on-one session for students who want to further their training by focusing on a specific technique, form or sparring.  Private classes are designed so that the student will receive immediate feedback and advice on how to improve, which helps accelerates the students training. One private class is equivalent to about a week’s worth of regular classes because of the student-teacher ratio.

                    

One of the students who recently took private classes shares how she learned to better visualize her target.  Before, she was striking with her techniques aimlessly, now she is exercising the power of visualization with every technique that she does and it’s helping her to direct her energy toward her target or goal.  Her focus at work and home has improved, she can see her goals clearly and she knows how to achieve them.

Why is visualization important?  Dr. Tae Yun Kim writes in one of her books, Seven Steps to Inner Power, “Visualization is the process of forming a mental image.” and “It is an immaterial activity that takes form first as a mental image, then as a material image.”  So, as students focus on their physical techniques, they are also visualizing their goals.  “No matter what goals you are aiming for in your life, visualization is an essential tool to achieving them.”  Dr. Kim’s words are based on nearly 70 years of experience and application.

Learn more about visualization! Can you visualize your goal and your dreams? Are you ready to make it happen? You can gain many insights and lessons through private classes offered at Jung SuWon!

 

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

 

"INTRODUCTION

As part of my Jung SuWon teaching, I hold Self Discovery Weekends where people explore and express themselves through many different energizing activities. The purpose of these weekends is to give people an opportunity to open up, to love themselves in a more expansive way, and most importantly, to discover more of their true Self. Most of each weekend is spent outdoors in beautiful, remote areas of nature.

I remember that during of these one weekends, while everyone was seated in a circle after completing some breathing exercises, a large butterfly flew into the circle and alighted on my arm.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

This charming and fascinating visitor seemed to have a mission. I invited him to step on my hand, and he did so without making any gesture to leave. He stretched his beautiful wings and waved them gently at everyone who came close to look. Even when I stood up and moved around, he still didn't fly away.

Like the butterfly, we had a mission as well. We were gathered together on this day for the purpose of true Self Discovery. It seemed as though this little visitor came to say, "Look at me if you want to know about self discovery." Perhaps his mission was to remind us of the powerful symbol nature gives us when a lowly drab caterpillar transforms itself into a multicolored winged being. No longer bound to crawl upon the earth, an altogether different creature flies to the air in freedom!

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

The transformation into a butterfly

But imagine if some terrible spell were to make the caterpillar forget his destiny, or forget who he really is. Imagine that the caterpillar never took steps to make the transformation possible. Imagine that he never ate the proper leaves, nor spun the cocoon. Perhaps he spent the rest of his life simply crawling around and avoiding his enemies finally dying of starvation or old age. What a loss this would be! We would only hope that something, somewhere, sometime would make the caterpillar remember his true identity and fulfill his true destiny.

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

In the same way, you have the potential to transform a life that is drab, unhappy, limited, or without fulfillment into one that brings the freedom of a butterfly! I call this Self Discovery. But Self Discovery is really self rediscovery. You already possess a powerful, pure, and radiant consciousness, which I call the Silent Master. The rediscovery of this aspect of yourself can bring you the freedom that makes life worth living, not avoiding, not hiding from, not faking."

 Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

"As this power flows through you—you, as an individual focus of this power co-create with this Life Force, this universal Consciousness that knows only ideas expressing Universal Love!

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

And with this love, you create expressions of peace, harmony, balance, joy, beauty, fulfillment, and completeness. Then, wearing your clothing of material form, you look out upon these expressions with your physical senses and experience the challenge and the victory of those earthly creations.

And you say, “We are One.”

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Although you know that you are of this creation, you know you exist apart from it. You know that you are the Sun behind the sun that your fire burns eternally behind everything that is known as time, and everything that is known as place, and everything that is known as this Universe.

And your fire is infinite Love, Awareness, Truth, Consciousness, which speaks to you and says,

Infinite Love

“Before you are, I Am. And I Am You.”

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

"When you reach step 12 in the meditation procedure just given, ask, “Who am I?” This question is the complete meditation. You ask the question with all your feeling, lovingly and sincerely. You may repeat the question several times, slowly, and with full concentration. Then, you listen. Listen until you have the knowing that you’ve listened long enough, even if you feel you haven’t received any answer. You have; the answer will begin to manifest in many different ways for as long as you continue to repeat the meditation.

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

When you ask “Who am I?” you are subtly asking two questions: Who am I, the self that I know; and, Who is the “I” of the Silent Master? Of course, you are One, and this meditation helps bring about that realization (realization means to “make real”)."

Communing With Your Silent Master

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Body and Mind As One - communing with your inner being, your Silent Master

In chapter five, I spoke of the physical training in Jung SuWon as a moving meditation. We saw that one of the most valuable goals of any meditation—moving or stationary—is to become one with your Silent Master Consciousness. Because your Silent Master is your personal focus for the Life Force of the Universe, through meditation you can seek to experience gifts of consciousness that exalt, uplift, energize, and harmonize your being, states of consciousness that are the experience of your true self. Thus, formal meditation can be one of the most satisfying, rewarding aspects of your life.

There is much to be said about the subject of meditation, and I will go into greater detail in another book. But for now, here is some introductory material so that you can begin meditation.

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Meditation

You meditate informally when you do just two things: you consciously affirm your unity with your Silent Master, and you quiet your mind to listen. You can do these things anywhere, anytime."

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Meditation is about being focused - body and mind all in the same moment & place

"Whether the meditation is informal or formal, there are always two steps. The first is to affirm to yourself that you and your Silent Master are One and to know and expect that the necessary information (or serenity, or clarity, or cleansing, or whatever) will manifest. Remember your Silent Master Consciousness operates over and above both your conscious and subconscious mind; therefore, whatever your need, or whatever your purpose for the meditation, your Silent Master can effectively penetrate your conscious or subconscious mind, if necessary, to answer appropriately."

Dr. Tae Yun Kim Quotes

Allow your mind to be still and clear

In my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:

 

"Martial arts training cultivates a respect for and an acknowledging of the symbols of reality. In the dojang (the Korean word for “training hall”) you will find attention given to symbols such as the uniform, the flags, and gestures of courtesy and respect; all are symbols of deep significance.

Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

The Korean term for Uniform is dobok. Do means “way of life,” and bok means “a spiritual protector or shield against the elements.” Thus, the wearing of your uniform has great symbolic value. When you wear it, you also “wear” your commitment to follow the spiritual path leading to your Silent Master. Your commitment is assuredly your protection against the elements. The belt wrapped around your waist symbolizes the unity of spirit you share with others on the path, and its color proudly proclaims your level of achievement. When you honor your uniform, you honor your real self."

"Physical Training Is Mental Warfare

 Dr Tae Yun Kim Quotes

In the first chapter I referred to the person seeking the Silent Master as a Jung SuWon Warrior for good reason. You are not a warrior only because you learn to physically fight. The seeker is a warrior also because the “not self” traits you may have identified as “you” are not necessarily easy to relinquish. In fact, most of us experience a struggle of one degree or another every time we challenge a weakness in ourselves. It may take much time and persistence to rid yourself of unwanted characteristics. This can amount to a struggle that feels like warfare."
